community of masters and PhD students, whilst having a large and successful
group of post-docs. CHSTM is embedded in Manchester’s Faculty of Life
Sciences, which was ranked in the top three submissions in the Research
Assessment Exercise 2008. We have research and teaching collaborations with
the University’s History department, the Medical and Nursing schools as well
as the social science departments. We pride ourselves on the
interdisciplinary nature of our degree programme and we cater for students
with a science background as well as those coming with a humanities or

science, technology and medicine or science communication. The Master in
